It’s Wednesday, my favorite day of the week! Happy Hump Day everyone! I hope you all have less tensed week than mine! Being back to work after a week away, right now I feel that I need vacation after the vacation! I love going away, I love seeing new places, but when I come back the first days are … ruthlessly hard, fierce!

I wanted tonight to have a post about post cards, about collections and hobbies, but did I have the time to sit and write it? Absolutely not! The last few days have been running, running and running again. Hectic mornings, quick showers, almost warm coffee in one hand, jacket and umbrella in the other and my feet on the curves of time. Behind me two arrows, one small and one big, metal and unpleasantly cold, pushing me, saying :” Come on! Hurry up! You’re late!” And I obey, half asleep, half awake, not able to react, I just listen and obey! Living in a free world and not having any freedom, captured in the prison of time! Tangled in seconds, minutes, hours … and 24 of them are not enough, I need at least 48 these days.

I sat earlier on a bench next to the bus-stop, happy that and this day is gone and I get to go home, thinking of my dark blue arm-chair and the quietness in my flat, dreaming of sitting and doing nothing, dreaming of the time still and everything else around with it. No movements, no sounds, no phones to answer or buses to chase, no effort to apply… just me and my inside peace, having a moment of sweetness, having a minute without to think. Wishful thinking …

    Even your hump-day posts come out extremely poetic! I’m jealous! lol :D. I love the line “Living in a free world and not having any freedom, captured in the prison of time! – I absolutely know that feeling, I used to be plagued with that problem when I was in school. I’m sorry to hear your week hasn’t been the best one, I hope by today it’s a bit better! :)

      I usually have control of time and obligations, but after holiday is always crazy! So today, Friday after 5 days of hell :) I think I feel ready to have my weekend, very good weekend! I envy you for the way you comment, I like all your comments, I even missed you these days with no comments from you! And your poems have their own style but it’s something I like! :) So let’s come to an agreement We are both very poetic !!!

        I can understand that, this past weekend was Thanksgiving here – so with the long weekend, it’s made my week feel off. I hope you have a great weekend though! You deserve it!

        And I’m glad you enjoy my comments – I look forward to yours as well! Sorry that I haven’t had a chance to write any until this morning – I’m usually very on top of these things!

        And yes – we are both very poetic :)

        Oh and I didn’t tell you Happy Thanksgiving! We don’t have Thanksgiving here and it’s always confusing to keep in touch with the other side of the world and their holidays! Anyway … Happy belated Thanksgiving then!
